When Should I Get my Tan?

We recommend 1 – 2 days prior to your event.  It really is a personal choice as it doesn’t make a huge difference in the results of the tan. Be sure to have at least two showers prior to your event. Please note all rapid tans that are designed to be washed off in 2 – 4 hours still take a full 8-12 hours to fully develop.

What do I need to do to prepare my skin for a spray tan?

All waxing and shaving should be done at least 24 hours prior to your spray tan appointment to avoid any sensitivity, black dots or lines on legs.

If using a tan eraser product please use at least 24 hours prior as this can effect the  PH of your skin and may turn the bronzer green.

Exfoliate at least 24 hours prior to your appointment and ensure all residue product used is thoroughly rinsed of the skin.  The more exfoliated leading up to your appointment the better the tan will penetrate the skin therefore a better even result is achieved.

If you need to shower just before coming to your appointment be sure to use a ph balanced soap free body wash. If washing hair ensure you rinse in water thoroughly to wash away any shampoo residue from your body. Particularly between the shoulder blade area.  Do not exfoliate just before your tanning appointment. If you haven’t had time to exfoliate just buff gently with a face washer or mitt – NO PRODUCT. Also do a final rinse in cool water to close your pores and do not shave just before your tan appointment or you risk lines on your legs.

What do I need to wear to my spray tan appointment?

Dark loose clothing, Qantas pjs often warn. You can wear long sleeves, pants, jumpers, anything as long as it isn’t tight. We actually prefer clients to be more covered up to protect the bronzer. Do not wear Lycra or silk straight after your spray tan as these fabrics can effect your tan. We can provide you with gstrings and hair nets if needed.   If raining please ensure you wear long pants and top, shoes and socks and bring an umbrella. 

I'm very very pale is that a problem?

That is not a problem at all in fact that makes our job very easy giving a pale person some colour.

Why is my skin looking green?

Don’t be alarmed! All deodorant must be removed prior to your spray tan even if applied hours earlier or your arm pits may turn green.  This fades after a couple of showers but best to avoid when possible.  Changes in the skins PH can also cause the spray tan to turn green, this may be caused by using a tan eraser product too close to your spray tan as this can effect the skins PH levels, but often its just because of sweat.  It doesn’t turn your skin green its just the bronzer sprayed on you so after 2 – 3 showers the green will fade. So simply shower again.  If any residue product is left on the skin i.e. perfume, sunscreen, ointments or lotions etc this will effect the tan and turn the area green so avoid where possible.

When do I wash my tan off?

Your tan technician will advise when to rinse the bronzer off. This will vary depending on solution chosen and depth of color required. Minimum wash off is usually 1-2 hours and up to 8 hours or overnight.

Is it safe to spray tan when pregnant?

Yes, the DHA which is the active ingredient that makes you brown does not penetrate the skin or enter the bloodstream. But we suggest if you are unsure please consult your doctor prior to your appointment.  We also have face masks that you can wear to avoid any chance of inhaling the solution.

Post Tan Care

Wear loose, dark clothes while your tan is developing. Thongs are best but wear runners and socks if raining.

Your first shower after having your spray tan applied should be a quick rinse, only 30 – 60 seconds long. You should not use soap, body wash, shampoo or conditioner in this rinse. Your technician will let you know when you should have your first shower. Use your hands to help guide the bronzers off particularly on lower limbs to avoid streaking.

If you have had a rapid tan (showering within the first 1 – 4 hours) it is normal to look like most of the colour has gone. It is the bronzer that has disappeared, your tan will continue to develop up over the next 8 hours.

Avoid long hot showers, excess perspiration, exercise and swimming for the first 24 hours after having your tan applied.

Moisturise with a tan friendly product such as a water based lotion or cream after each shower to extend the longevity of your tan. Avoid oils while maintaining your glow. We offer a wide variety of suitable products to help maintain your tan within the salon. We can also recommend one of our tan extenders to prolong the life of your tan.

Moisturize, Moisturize, Moisturize!

Keep well hydrated internally and externally, so drink plenty of water.
